    That is awewsome. Glad to hear it was welded aluminum. I was worried for a moment there. I'm sure grant meets a ton of folks at shows but tell him Patrick from Alaska says hello and congrats on the little one.

    what is the hp rating on the boat, I think a 115 might be enough to get it on step with a full load

    Can't see that end, but he should have a blue pump on it for that size boat. I should get a boat like that for my kids new little one too. Congratulations Grant!

    Max HP rating for powering this model boat with payload is 1 Dad or 1 Grandfather whichever has more energy

    Generally this package is quieter but at top RPM may have higher DB numbers
